I suggest to increase Header and Jump because it was strong in head shots. See the description on Wikipedia: "Disse di lui il compagno di squadra Felice Borel: «Era idolatrato dagli inglesi: era il calciatore inglese, forte, deciso, generoso». Abile soprattutto nel colpo di testa, salì alla ribalta come profilico centravanti, e fu per ricoprire questo ruolo che l'Alessandria lo ingaggiò dal Savona; osservandolo, l'allenatore dei grigi Carlo Carcano pensò invece di utilizzare la sua peculiarità in fase difensiva e lo schierò dunque in mediana, sulla sinistra, ruolo in cui raggiunse la fama. Era riconoscibile poiché, per proteggersi dai colpi del pallone, indossava un fazzoletto bianco sulla fronte.Carlo F. Chiesa lo descrive come un «formidabile difensore, dalla tipica benda sulla fronte, con la quale pareva calamitare i palloni, tanto facile e perentorio gli riusciva il colpo di testa», e ne ricorda la «grande pulizia negli interventi in chiusura» e l'abilità «nella fase di rilancio». Carlo Moriondo lo ricorda «lungo, dinoccolato, il fazzoletto bianco attorno ai capelli ricciuti, imbattibile nei colpi di testa, con un eccezionale compasso di gambe che gli permetteva di garantire spazi enormi; un compendio di volontà e di tecnica".
And the white handkerchief with which you can see in some images, he used to protect the head,because it used a lot the headbutt,and in the game air he excelled

Hey Simcav, aren't his STA way little over the top?


i asked 'cause players of that time (Before 1930's and 1950's players) are somehow overpowered with those high amount of STA, players of that time are not (at least, for me) better in terms of STA/RES than current players...

I've just read this: "In campo, Bertolini, dava limpressione di spendere allinizio tutte le energie che aveva in corpo. Spesso, a metà partita, sembrava già in riserva sfiancato e sfiatato; ma non era che una impressione. Il giocatore alessandrino era come un motore con il compressore che gira più del suo regime normale e Bertolini recuperava sempre: allultimo minuto era ancora quello del primo tempo, sempre con laspetto di un atleta sfinito che, miracolosamente, era arrivato alla fine della partita. Dove giocava lui, la zona risultava effettivamente coperta, lì non cerano falle o buchi, né vuoti improvvisi. Sembrava che catturasse palloni facendoseli calamitare sulla fascia bianca che gli legava la fronte."

I also was in doubt about RES, but I think this is good enough to leave him a red value

Ok, it seems that you had a reason.

Although we should not be overconfident on texts dealing with pre-World War II players ... just a comment expressing my doubts and concerns...

Of course, but cannot always take literally quotes citing phisycal stats like the previous mentioned... at least that's my pointview of those players regarding his Resistance on field

Thanks Simcav for the update..However, I wanted to ask you something: why BALANCE was lowered from 78 to 83?It was a good recovery of balls...For the question of STAMINA too high as the value for the time, in my opinion the value of 95 is excellent for Bertolini...It's true that players from those years not ran as current players but Bertolini was distinguished for its great capacity of resistance to 90 minutes...And all the writings about him,highlight this peculiar characteristic.

Just take a look to the page from tifosibianconeri.com about him, all the descriptions of the players are really good, and I think I have to update a lot of players

That's something that we'll never know i guess, unless it is explicitly stated somewhere.
